Def Leppard, Journey to rock Alltel 

YEAH! Def Leppard.
  • YEAH! Def Leppard.

Classic rock groups Def Leppard and Journey, who have had one of the top grossing tours of 2006, bring their show to Alltel Arena on Monday, Oct. 30.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $33.75, $53.75 and $73.75 through all Ticketmaster outlets (www.ticketmaster.com, 975-7575) or the arena box office (975-9000).

Though San Francisco-based Journey compiled a substantially larger list of hits over the late 1970s and early ’80s, it’s Britain’s arena rock colossus Def Leppard that has been the big draw of this show, according to news reports throughout the summer.

Def Leppard released a covers album, “Yeah!” in May, honoring the group’s musical heroes of the 1960s and ’70s. The band is known for the 1980s hits “Photograph” and “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and has sold 65 million albums worldwide. Def Leppard consists of Joe Elliott on vocals, Vivian Campbell and Phil Collen on guitars, Rick Savage on bass and Rick Allen on drums.

Journey, which stormed the pop charts behind the falsetto vocals of Steve Perry, turned after Perry’s retirement to Steve Augeri for the past decade of touring. But Augeri has had to sit out this tour since July with a throat infection. Journey originals Neal Schon on guitar and Ross Valory on bass are joined by Jonathan Cain, the band’s keyboardist for the past two decades; Deen Castronovo on drums, and Jeff Scott Soto on vocals. Soto previously sang with Schon’s side project.

Journey’s most recent album is 2005’s “Generations.” Four Journey albums have ranked in the top 10 of Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart. The band has sold more than 75 million albums, making Journey the 29th best-selling group of all time, according to Billboard.
